Charm Spots

Charming Spots I Love!

For all my local readers and those just passing on through Florida, I thought I would share some of my most favorite spots. Some of which I visit regularly, or just happen to stumble upon in my wanderings.

Found a wonderful paint and finish supplier down here in South Florida! A couple of days ago my sister and I went on a fabulous adventure to TLC Design Studio. Seems I have peeked her own artistic itch with all the re fabs I have been creating, and now she really wants to create a few of her own….with my help.

Paint And Finish Candy Store, TLC Design Studios

My Sister really wanted to see some of Annie Sloan’s colors hands on. I found the best little Annie Sloan Stockist in S Fl today! After a Google search we hopped in the van and headed down to Oakland Park, with the help of a trusty android navigation app of course. – I get lost in Ft Lauderdale!

TLC Guilding

Anyway…we mosey on in to TLC Design Studio and what a treat! Not only do they carry Annie’s whole line, but they carry the lines Beautiful, and Artisan Enhancements for creating additional finishes. Let me tell you… we were like two kids in a candy store!!!

TLC raised Stencil

Victoria, the studio overseer was a total doll….she really spent time with us discussing different techniques, finishes, waxes, glazes, and color combinations we had a blast!

TLC Painted Faux Stone

The shop owner +Jeanne Hall, who was out for the day is a huge talent in faux finishes and murals, you should see her faux stone….. all I can say is….WHOA.

Stencils at TLC

I would love to apprentice under her just to learn her artistic techniques, simply…fabulous! The shots I took does no justice to the works displayed.

TLC papers

Hopefully I will run into her on my next visit that would be a treat, because we will be back…. for sure. We left with tons of new information and bags of supplies to play with.

TLC Crackle

I love a\Annie’s crackling medium, look at the tiny porcelain like crackling it creates!

So if you’re in South Florida and are hankering to get your hands on Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint, brushes, inspiring books, finished pieces, Annie approved complementary enhancing finishes, or to learn about techniques – yes they offer workshops too! Hop on over to TLC Design Studio in Oakland’s definitely worth the drive!

Head on over to their Facebook page  … check out some photos and don’t forget to like their page & share the love of this great paint and finish supplier….

This great color combo on this table inspired me to use something similar on one of my own recreations, you can check out that project on this face lift table project .

Love this jem of a shoppe, very professional, well put together place. I just wish they offered some type of milk paint to try out.
